TV’s year of abuse continues with the Daily Mail apologising for language it published in referring to a participant on Bachelor in Paradise, Florence.
The article published yesterday referred to her as a “vapid c***” before editing the Live copy two hours later.
“Daily Mail Australia would like to apologise for inappropriate language that appeared on an article published by this site on Sunday morning,” a spokesman said.
“The story about Bachelor in Paradise star Florence Alexandra contained offensive wording that should not have been included.
“As soon as we became aware of the mistake, the wording was removed.
“The Daily Mail Australia will properly investigate how the offending words were published.”
Florence Alexandra is reportedly consulting lawyers.
Updated: “After an internal investigation, Daily Mail Australia has now terminated the employment of the journalist responsible for the offending words,” says spokesperson.
